Routes that do not have fuel surcharges (YQ) when operated by carriers that normally charge YQ:

1. USA-Germany-Other country. If only the Germany-other country segment is on LH it does not have YQ. E.g. DFW-FRA-BLR with TATL on UA and FRA-BLR on LH.
2. USA-Canada-Other country. The USA-Canada segment on AC does not have YQ if the Canada-Other country segment is operated by a carrier that does not charge YQ. E.g. DFW-YYZ-ADD.

If your going to whine about a connection; or transiting thru the states; then you cannot whine about YQ; it has been around for a while; we know how to get around it.

On my upcoming trip the agent kept trying to force me thru europe on AC; I told them to fly a kite and to manually input YYZ-JFK-CAI; they where very grumpy about it; but my only other connection was ZRH and the times simply did not work;

On the return I had 2 choices fly SYD-AKL-PVG-ZRH-YUL-YYZ but I am originating in YEG; so I would need to spend 2 days getting back (lost salary) and a separate ticket to YEG; or just swallow the 500YQ SYD-YYZ connecting in YVR and YEG and just skip the last segment.

I had a choice; took what was convenient for me and did not whine about it.

Did you post your itinerary before on this or other threads. I would be interested in seeing it.

The ticket is worth around $550 for tango so I am somewhat happy with the value. I had to get the person on the same flight I am on for convenience.
are you going to a cruise as well?

Plus the $30 booking fee. And the rep didn't think my outbound routing was valid

Do they only show the "PRIORITY" badge on the first flight in each direction, or does it just so happen that my SFO-YVR and YGK-YYZ were the only flights that required IKK? The flight was booked yesterday, and it's for this weekend.

Because I need to leave after work on Friday and not get there incredibly late on Saturday. And the SFO-YYZ red-eye had no IKK availability

Edit: There's availability now Yay free SE change!

I guess, but it's still a free change. So that's done now, and the route is much less insane

Due to currency fluctuations, I had to provide my credit card for another 50 cents .

We both got a good laugh out of that. I guess CAD is gaining a bit against the USD?

Edit: This change kicked me out of my seat assignments on the unchanged return flights. Luckily, I noticed, and got them back, but I had been bumped from 12A to 15B on a 320. If I hadn't noticed, I would have been pretty ticked.

I did; not very exicting;

YYZ-JFK-CAI(22h)-DXB(5d)-PEK(2d)-SYD(11d)-YVR-YEG-YYZ; total taxes where $780? per person, YQ was 500 dead.

There was no other good way to get a long connection in at CAI and then get to dxb; the LX flights just didnt match up;

I was looking at the ASIA_EUROPE_NA on the return, but they would not allow YUL-YEG-YYZ even tho it was below MPM;

I was in BKK in a few weeks ago for the weekend before heading to Brunei. I saw one road closure, that was it. I land late at night, and am taking off the next morning for Phuket, so not to worried at all.
